retake advice- please help!

Postby calidancer2 » Wed Oct 26, 2011 9:43 pm

I got a 169 on Oct '11 Administration. Retaking in December. I took a Testmasters course and did the 13 most recent PT's for my prep in Oct. I'm not really sure where to go from here... I'm halfway through LR Bible for reviewing purposes, but then what? I think a BIG part of my problem was that I did my PT's as 4-section, not 5, and therefore wasn't ready stamina-wise (as evidenced by my test, which was -3, -2, -2, -8). Also think I choked a little due to nerves/shoddy testing space (DO NOT TEST AT UCSB!!!)

Should I practice with older tests, even though I've seen a lot of those question in my TM prep and they're not AS similar as the most recent PTs? Or should I be doing the most recent PTs again, since I started back them back in late August and finished June 11 the last week of September? Not sure I'd be "fuzzy" enough on them for me to take them and get realistic scores.

Notes: I was PTing average at 170, with a high of 175. I'd love to get 171+. I have way too much free time right now, only work about 10-15 hours a week, with pretty much nothing to do but study.

Thanks for any advice. Trying to set a schedule now and would love some TLS input. (long time lurker, minimal poster).

You don't sound like you're too far off from your goal, just keep drilling to increase your speed and intuition skills. Old and new tests both have their benefits, so mix/match while you have time, but towards the end I would focus on the newer LR's/RC's. Good luck!
